The irony was immediately apparent to several of my co-workers. They're reporters on the Hewlett-Packard public relations e-mail list. Each got an e-mail from HP at 6:10 PT, Sept. 21, 2006. With a PDF attachment.
This comes after revelations that someone working for HP sent an e-mail attachment to a reporter that investigators believe may have contained a clever tracking mechanism.
So, do you trust HP this time? We did open the attachment, which announced a news conference.
Besides, we have nothing to hide, not even our sense of irony. Everything we know about HP is already online.
